Oblivious reporting as bad as fake reporting

A Palestinian terrorist fires at anti-terrorism forces, using
children and other by-standers as human shields.

The caption accompanying this AP photo from Yahoo News is simply unbelievable:
A Palestinian militant fires toward Israeli troops during an arrest raid in the West Bank village of Qabatiyeh near Jenin, Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2006. Four Palestinians were wounded when the army arrested an Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades militant, Palestinians sources said. The army said two Islamic Jihad militants were arrested during the operation.

Without the photo, one might assume a lone, brave "militant" was standing up to Israeli aggression against his comrades.

I've taken the liberty of captioning the photo a bit more appropriately.
